About Our Mobile Food Dens

The Food Den Limited is a premium GLUTEN FREE mobile food vendor & caterer, built upon decades of service in the hospitality industry. We have a reputation for being great, safe and reliable.

Not only is our food delicious, it’s also Gluten Free: (8 years and counting) hot chips, freshly battered hot dogs, smoked streaky bacon butties, American hot dogs & Loaded fries We even have a range of hot and cold drinks and Ice cold slushies available in each trailer.

As an environmentally conscious business we’ve spent the last 4 years replacing  all our food packaging with 100% Plastic-free paper packaging. That means no plant based plastic (PLA), oil based plastic (PET) or synthetic based plastic lining (BIOPBS) on any of our paper products. We don’t use plastic cups or straws, only 100% compostable paper products.

Our paper packaging is able to be composted in any commercial or home environments, and break down faster than plastic lined products used extensively today.

In fact we have our own compost and worm farm facilities, we re-use all packaging materials used in the manufacture and transport of our food, and recycle at our local transfer station.

When it comes to energy efficiency we use LED lighting throughout all of our food trailers and yard, electricity is supplemented with our 10KW solar system, and because we’re based in a rural environment we have 50,000 litres of rain water tanks for cleaning and irrigating.

We don’t just talk about being environmentally friendly, we’re actually doing it.

If you’re wanting sweet treats at your event, then we have you sorted for that, too. The Lil Orbits Donut Den serves delicious hot mini donuts and Slushies. View here for more details

All our Food trailers are capable of operating 24/7 and we promise to never run out of food, so if you’ve got an all day, all night, or all weekend event then we’ve got you covered. All of our Food Dens operate under the latest Food Control Plan Exemption # WEBB 9U7TQB (formerly Food Permits & Registration). We carry the latest fire safety equipment, gas certification, electrical warrant of fitness and silent generators.

There's potential for a slow trip for those heading south to Ōrari Racecourse for the Swapmeet on Saturday. Make sure you leave AshVegas early.SH1 HINDS TO RANGITATA – ROAD RECONSTRUCTION WORK

Plan ahead for STOP/GO between Hinds and Rangitata on Friday 5 April, 10am-4pm for road renewal work. In the event of poor weather, this work will be undertaken on Saturday 6 April.

Road users are advised to expect significant DELAYS of 40 minutes at the site south of Ealing.

For those wanting to avoid the delays, an alternative route is available. Southbound traffic - turn right onto Dalmaine St, left onto Hinds Arundel Rd, left onto Route 72 Arundel Rakaia Gorge Rd, left onto SH79 Rangitata-Orari Bridge Hwy, then back onto SH1 (alternative route will take about 35 minutes). Or consider continuing south through Geraldine and along Route 72 to Winchester and back onto SH1. Reverse for northbound traffic. Please note that this alternative route is not suitable for HPMVs and wide loads.

You can read the medial release here: nzta.govt.nz/road-sealing-work-north-of-rangitata-river-this-friday-or-saturday-if-wet/

This work is dependent on various factors and may be rescheduled, and an update will be provided in the comment section.

Thank you for your patience and understanding while these essential works take place.
